Summer is here and the time is right, if you're that way inclined, for dancing, possibly in the street. Or if you like a bit more structure, the time is right for an assortment of popular characters and local organisations having a bit of a wander through the streets of Armadale while other people stand on the side of the road and watch. If you're confused (don't worry, I am too), what I'm trying to say in my usual convoluted way is that there is less than one week until the Christmas Parade. Which means less than one week until Santa Claus comes to town (for a quick visit, not the main event). Which means less than one week until the City of Armadale's Carols by Candlelight. Which means I am over excited, like a little puppy when everyone else gets home (definitely not as cute though).
Put it in your diaries people! Friday, 2nd December from 6.00pm. It's always a really wonderful event and if you do lean towards Grinch like tendencies at this time of year, this is sure to banish them. I always think there is something wonderful about outdoor concerts at night and when you add a bit of Christmas sparkle, it becomes magical. Not to mention it's the closest I'll ever get to being in a made-for-TV Christmas movie (if you don't love them in all their kitschy joy, I don't want to hear it).
So it's back to the rehearsal room to make sure we're pitch perfect for the most wonderful concert of the year.
